Theater Forced to Cancel Gala at Prince’s Paisley Park
MINNEAPOLIS -- A Minneapolis theater has been forced to cancel a gala that was planned this month at Prince's Paisley Park recording complex.
Organizers say they had received assurances from Paisley Park staff that Mixed Blood Theatre's 40th anniversary gala could go on as scheduled May 14. But Mixed Blood canceled the party after the court-appointed representative of Prince's estate told the theater it could not hold the sold-out event at Paisley Park, where the rock star died last month.
Ticket holders were informed of the cancellation late Friday.
Mixed Blood managing director Amanda White Thietje says Bremer Trust has decided to enforce a ban on all public events at Paisley Park for now.
Bremer Trust said in a statement it's doing so to protect Prince's legacy.
